Talk on Fenland farmer Tony Martin's notorious shooting case will be 'explosive' say organisers
A talk on Fenland farmer Tony Martin's notorious case later this month promises to be "explosive" and will force those present to challenge what was said by police.
That's what organisers are promising for those who attend either of the two sessions on Saturday September 21 in the ballroom at Elme Hall Hotel in Wisbech.
The talk entitled 'Tony Martin: Target of Police Conspiracy' will be given by campaigner Brian Pead at 2pm to 4pm and then again at 5pm to 7pm and everyone is welcome to have a listen, free of charge.
It will focus on the infamous shooting of two burglars by Mr Martin at his farmhouse in Emneth Hungate in August 1999
Chris Schooling, a fellow campaigner, said: "Everyone we have spoken to and explained the evidence we have found which shows how corrupt the case was against Tony Martin have been shocked.
"We have unearthed so much new evidence and have gone through hundreds of documents and found so many things that don't add up including evidence that shows Tony Martin could not have shot Fred Barras and Brendon Fearon that night.
"There are so many unanswered questions and the talk will make those who come along challenge what we were told by the police about what happened."
He said the aim is to gather enough public support to force the government to re-open the case and quash Mr Martin's conviction for the manslaughter of teenager Fred Barras.
Mr Schooling said: "The talk will be really informative, it's explosive and a real eye opener. People will hear new evidence. Everything about the case was very corrupt, a lot of the statements have been altered. We have even spoken to Brendan Fearon.
"We don't know whether Tony will be at the talks or not, he is not very well at the moment, but he may put in an appearance.
"We have a petition and we want the public to sign it and force the government to look at the case again. The evidence we have found leaves a lot of questions that need answering including the fact that one witness said they saw Fred Barras in Newark at 8.30pm (an hour and a half's drive away) and the shooting is supposed to have happened at 10.30pm.
"Why if Tony Martin shot them inside the house was there no blood. Why if it was a straight forward shooting were there three autopsies on Fred Barras and many more. People will be shocked by our findings."
